Two more annoyingly good blogs to add to the reader: Kassia Krozser’s Booksquare—for her talk about books, ebooks, killing imprints (although we just started one, so what do we know), and so on—and the 26th Story (you know, the one where all the words start with Z) which talked about an idea we’ve seen before and made us think we should do it: offering ebooks as cheap add-ons (or premiums?) to people who buy the lovely paper versions from us. So we’ll be doing that then.
So far the score here is:
- Firings: 0 (there aren’t enough of us to fire anyone)
- Federal Bailout: 0 (given a small, $7-8 billion temporary loan we’re quite sure we would survive well into next year).
